This special Forum brings together short commentaries from anthropologists working in a variety of university settings and roles, to reflect on our immediate recent experiences with the imposition of public sector educational reforms. The contributions explore ongoing institutional transformations in Australia and New Zealand, Romania, Denmark, Greece, Finland, Mexico, US, Holland, Spain, Canada and the UK. We aim to establish a platform to host ongoing discussions about the changing nature of higher education and its implications for the future of anthropology. We are confident that these exchanges in Anuac will enable colleagues coping with the impacts of austerity to move together toward a coalition in favour of the university as we think it should be.

Abstract

This special Forum brings together short commentaries from anthropologists working in a variety of university settings and roles, to reflect on our immediate recent experiences with the imposition of public sector educational reforms. The contributions explore ongoing institutional transformations in Australia and New Zealand, Romania, Denmark, Greece, Finland, Mexico, US, Holland, Spain, Canada and the UK. We aim to establish a platform to host ongoing discussions about the changing nature of higher education and its implications for the future of anthropology. We are confident that these exchanges in Anuac will enable colleagues coping with the impacts of austerity to move together toward a coalition in favour of the university as we think it should be. Contributions of Cris Shore & Susan Wright, Vintilă Mihăilescu, Sarah F. Green, Gabriela Vargas-Cetina & Steffan Igor Ayora-Diaz, Tracey Heatherington, Dimitris Dalakoglou, Noelle Molé Liston, Susana Narotzky, Jaro Stacul, Meredith Welch-Devine, Jon P. Mitchell.
